We are excited to announce the creation of the Empty Nest Wine Club!
-What is this new Club you ask? It is a way for our loyal wine lovers to purchase exclusive specialty wines from our cellar when available. These wines will be released to our Wine Club first and then if there are any bottle left, for general sale. so join the Wine Club
and get your hands on the special bottles of these upcoming vintages.
-How do you join? There is no annual fee to join. Membership is gained by purchasing 24 bottles of Empty Nest wine from our tasting room or Farmers Markets. These bottles do not need to be purchased all out once.
-What type of wine will be available to club members? Our releases for 2014 were:
- White Lace
- Naked Iced Apple
- Night Temptation
"Blind Wine Event Winners" will be released this way. Throughout a typical year,
we like to try new recipes out or slightly tweak an existing one. These
wines will be the ones available to you as a Club member.
-When can I start? Starting February 7th ! Saturdays 10-5 and Sundays 1-5, Stop by the winery to get started today!

Empty Nest Winery is family owned and operated. Set in beautiful rural Northeast Iowa located between Decorah and Waukon. We make handcrafted wines the old fashioned way by fermenting the whole berries/fruit not just the juice. Our berry wines are just the berries fermented not grape or apple based with just some berries or berry flavor added as many other wineries do. We make our wine in small batches using many varieties of berries handpicked predominantly on our family farm or from the surrounding local area. We never filter our wines as that can strip away their natural color and flavor so some bottles may have sediment on the bottom but that is completely natural and will not affect the amazing ‘True to the Fruit Flavor’! Sample up to 18 different & unique wines (click on “Our Wines” page to see tasting notes) in our tasting room on Saturdays from 10-5 and Sundays from 1-5, Closed in January. Call ahead for private group tastings or large groups.
We host private wine tastings and parties so call to book a time to come and taste our wine.
